Setup: 75War/Nin (me), 75Rdm/Whm, and 59Whm/Smn. Spent 4 hours in Temple of Uggalepih with no luck. Stabbers are easy but you have to fight alot more unless you stay invisibled. We had no trouble with anything.

Next day I went back as a 75Pld/Whm. kills were a little slow but they were easy. Only rested if i got links and aggro's and had to fight more than just stabbers. I also tryed choppers. I did this for about an hour or so, no luck.

Then night as a 75Pld/War, 75Rdm/Whm, and 59Whm/Blm we went to Den of Rancor to kill slashers. Took a few hours but we finally got it. They were easy kills and in one area. So this is the best place so you dont have to mess with anything else. We killed a lizard and puk just for the hell of it. Easy. We also killed one of the bullbegars or whatever theyre called. We killed it, but unless you are an experienced group or have alot of people, don't mess with them.

If i'm not mistaken i believe the pos in Den of Rancor was H-8 on the 8th map on ffxi-atlas.com from entrance K.

For anyone trying to get this key for Carby mitts, try agroing a pot behind the door to open it for you and rush inside before it closes. There are about 2 NIN tonberries you can reach before the Bonze room and maybe 2-3 more past it. Would recommend hunting it in Den as they're more plentiful. 0/5 in Temple 1/12 in Den.

*Edit* Yeah tried this myself after hearing someone write about it. It seems much more difficult than it sounds to target something behind the door. Upon going for Sandy 8-2, I couldn't target a thing behind this door, farmed a key in Den and took a look and the nearest mobs were well out of range, I'm thinking the door trick only works if the mobs spawn closer to the door, as there might be a chance you might not be able to.

Spent a lot of time killing choppers with a friend and so far no drop. Can someone confirm whether this is a one use key? Managed to get my offering last night for the Carbuncle's Mitts NM and need the key to get to it.

Choppers definately drop this key. And yes, it is also a 1-use key.

Key is required either to get to the Carby Mitts NM or to enter the room with "Tonberry King."

This is a single coffer spawn right at the exit of the BC area, you can go south through the door without a key but not north. The door "before" it heading west takes a Uggalipeh key.

Edit: For clarification, the 2 doors to reach the Carby Mitts NM are up the steps at I-10 and J-10. The other door that uses this key for the Tonberry King is at the northern part of E-8.

we got it on one drop by accident, by aggro doing ZM4 outside, on the top level

key is also used to open the door to reach the spawn point for Crimson-Toothed Pawberry (lvl 75). Offering to Uggalepih is required to spawn the mob.

Isn't this key also used to open a certian door that holds a coffer spawn spot?

I can confirm this, both mobs are Ninja type and they drop Prelate Key.

Tonberry Choppers are usually found on the "ledges" when you zone out into Jungle again.

The only problem with the Choppers by the ledges is that they dont spawn enough. To fix this you have to wipe out all the Shadowers and Jinxers to force spawn the chopper.
